We have had success in our Reducing Antibiotic Prescribing project ( which also reduced greatly the number of GP appointments needed without disappointment to the patients).
We have been building on that achievement in some joint research on hospital discharges and re-admissions , for South Tees CCG, with RCVDA.
We are co-applicants in two projects in conjunction with a University.
NESCHA Board members are also involved as individuals ion a variety of research projects with Universities around the country.
We are working with two care provider forums and looking at the challenges they face post Covid , not least of which is recruitment.
We are also now embarking on a project to get views form hard to reach /seldom heard people who need regular prescriptions and are unable to collect these.
More news on this. soon but if you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org
